I think the review he posted was cherry picked and a one off, judging by the main page, which is pretty glowing:
What Edmunds.com says
The previous Sonata was a solid contender, but for 2011, the Hyundai Sonata vaults itself to the top of the class.
Smooth ride, spacious cabin and trunk, capable handling, impressive value, strong safety scores, lengthy warranty.
But the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, like a maturing great band that comes into its own, has become worthy of headliner status in the family-sedan arena.
ll things considered, the latest Sonata manages to stand out in a segment chock full of good choices. It's more fun to drive than the ubiquitous Accord and Camry, and though the Altima, Mazda 6, Chevy Malibu and Ford Fusion are also good picks, the Sonata has the price advantage. With its spirited performance, impressive fuel economy, solid build quality and strong value, we have a feeling that the 2011 Hyundai Sonata will have no problem climbing the charts.

Maybe it was attempt at sarcasm?
Nonetheless it is true.
I did find the Accord to be a pretty good performer for a midsized car, though its thinly padded front seat and constant road noise were a problem for me. As for the Camry, it was very comfortable but fun to drive it ain't.

You'll find that the 2011 Sonata is by far the best car.
I think that what you meant to say is that the Sonata is by far the best car for you, which, as I'm sure that you'll agree, is the strongest claim that can be made for any car.
As good as it is - & it is certainly very good - the new Sonata won't get the job done for those buyers who want or need 6 cylinders or AWD.
I don't have a dog in this hunt because I have no plans to buy a new car until next year at the earliest. I'm merely pointing out the obvious.

My High School English teacher told us that unless the writer is stating an objective fact (such as, the earth is round), we should presume it to be their opinion. So the term "in my opinion" is redundant because it's implied. So yeah in his opinion the Sonata is the best car.
For me I think the Sonata hit's a nice spot in the pack of mid sized cars, and does it for a great value.

Prisus any one, Monday in CA a highway runaway and just today in NY there was a runaway out of the guys driveway, who is it that said get in touch with reality Toyota is still a great car, I'm sure it was Consumer (in Toyotas pocket)Reports that made the assement. Here is reality check I would recomend people to shy away somewhat from Toyota for a few years.
Also, who could feel safe buying a used Toyota, I'd be thinking was this one of the cars that they didn't fix?

I for one am not worried. As I said earlier I really kind of liked the Camry and am mulling it over.

Exactly what the guy in the Prius doing 90 against his will in California said yesterday.

Um, were you in the passenger seat? Do you *really* know what happened? Do you know why the car was not able to be shut off or put into neutral? Do *you* have the presence of mind to react in a potentially deadly situation? I think there is a big parallel to the "Ouchdi" (Audi) unintended acceleration issues years ago.
Do you know that you can get killed in any car you drive, even big trucks with the 5.7 liter engine?
You can go around worrying or you can live.
